Abstract : A comprehensive series of interconnected computer models are described which assist water control managers in operating reservoir systems during real-time flood emergencies. The need for and the desirable features of a transportable comprehensive software system are presented along with a description of the various computer models developed for this purpose by the Hydrologic Engineering Center of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. The functions, capabilities and inerties of the Data Management, Operation, Forecast and Display computer modules used in this software system are described and an example application of this system on one of the Corps' reservoir systems is presented.
